Aaron801: The idea is OK, but the execution somehow leaves something to be desired.
The process they use for food photography definitely does not transfer to whatever they call this. It must have been a slow week at the restaurant.
Todd Ka: This the dumbest thing ever featured on DPR.
The series is uninspired, unimaginative and totally forgettable. The scenario possibilities are obvious and so "fill in your own blank". Sure they're a chuckle, but they're more in the genre of "laugh of the day" spam emails than art. That's neither a rant nor an insult. That's my critique of them being placed here in this forum and that's all. When DP puts fluff like this in the NEWS panel they make it one step closer to turning it into a tabloid.
what kind of crap is this? Is has nothing to do with photography. Nothing at all.
DonSantos: This just increased the resale value of my d600. Thanks Nikon
My thoughts exactly. It's a second chance to dump the camera and the rest of my Nikon equipment and make a "run for it".
Let this be a LESSON TO THE WEAK KNEE people that shot down anyone who started discussing class action lawsuits with the excuse that it was fruitless. A swift KICK IN THE PANTS to the regular THREAD POLICE who whined about being "forced" to wade through D600 oil threads, insisting that the forum was going down the drain because of it. Shame-on the FAN-BOIZ and "wanna be Nikon reps" (you know who YOU are) who denied there was an issue and told people to accept mediocrity and just stop shooting smaller than f8.TAKE A LIFE LESSON and learn! This is how you get things done. This is the balance of power that consumers still have; freedom of public speech and public perception. Consumers have more power in their wallet than they realize.As one of the people who constantly spoke out about the problem, posted samples and shot thousands of blank frames to test clean up theories, and shouted at Nikon for refusing to accept responsibility... "You're Welcome"
RichRMA: It was oil, not dust. Right? Dust is easy to deal with. Sticky junk isn't.
Yes it is oil. When the sensor cleaner doesn't shake it off, vigorous blowing doesn't move it off, dry brushing doesn't take it off, and wet cleaning smears it.... it's OIL.
A beautiful film that profoundly expresses Sigma's values, their passion for imaging, and their dedication to skills for precise manufacturing. A well crafted film weaves more than just one idea into the story. Sigma is saying: this is what we believe, this is who we are serving, and this is our promise to people who share their passion. The juxtaposing feelings between cold winter and warm summer serves two purposes; to show that there is a season for serious preparation and a season to consume and enjoy the fruit. The film finishes with a Sigma employee contently standing in the winter scene confidently holding the finished product staring directly at the viewer. The work is done, Sigma has put their hearts and souls into the work and they stand behind their product (really...in the last scene he is STANDING BEHIND THE PRODUCT).People who only comment on depressed smiles miss the entire message. They are only morons with nothing better to do. Not everyone is a real photographer.
Ooooh, SNAP! I did not see that coming. A couple of other birds just got pushed out of the nest.
She has a lot of talent in setting up scenes and posing her models, which work together to invoke emotions of touching moments. A fair amount of post processing as some have mentioned, but only to amplify the intention of the photograph. You can't always wait for the light to be perfect, or for the fog to roll in. I would be happy to produce any of the images. The photographer is definitely not a poor impoverished share-cropper like most of us Americans immediately associate with the term "Russian Farm"
The slides become monotonous quickly even after the 4 minute mark when basically all that changes is the concentration of the sky movement. Yes the image quality is very high and the exposure is perfect. But slide after slide after slide is extremely pretentious and self indulgent. It's even distracting especially during the beautiful cloud sequences. I would say the sliding ruined the film. Get over yourself dude, it's a fad among still photographers.
justmeMN: Thankfully, Olympus didn't have an endoscope photography contest. :-)
Tape worms are frightening!
SRT3lkt: Merry Christmas to all microorganisms.
Back at you, and all the rest of you ladies and germs. (google it young'ns)
TLD: For goodness sake lift your heads up and talk to the camera!!!
Just imagine we're all naked to put yourself at eeze.
Et tu Ricoh? Silly gooses!
This whole "look at me I'm photographing freaky people" got lame real quick a long time ago.
papparazzi: We should sue them for the D600?
I think Swiffer has a case against Nikon for the D600. But yah...Nikon suing someone else? Oh the irony!
I had a contractor build me a house. He's a good builder, an excellent builder. He could have designed the house also and it would have been a lovely house. But I enlisted the help of a professional designer to make it an excellent house.BTW, has anyone seen the tear-down from Lens Rental of the Olympus 75? cut'n paste >> http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2012/07/the-olympus-75mm-f1-8-is-expensive-because-its-worth-it
I was laughing at the extremes of these Super-Zooms THEN I thought maybe these are what the herds of new "freelance photo-journalists" on the street will be using.
Prairie Pal: Superzooms are reducing themselves to ridiculous extremes now.
But is the image taken through these telescopes "worth" exhibiting at resolutions beyond just viewing on monitors? Asking...not being rhetorical.
